MAKERS MARKET™ KICKS OFF 2017 CRAFT FAIRS AT SANTANA ROW
April 1 Makers Market in the Park will feature local artists, live music, free wine tasting, bites, and a DIY workshop!
San Jose, Calif. – March 27, 2017 – Makers Market, retailer of American-made goods for a new generation, announces the April 1st kickoff of its 2017 Makers Market in the Park series - a monthly artisan craft market in the South Bay.
The Market is back, by demand, after a very successful 2016 season which brought thousands of craft-lovers to Santana Row each month.
Makers Market in the Park, held at Santana Row, San Jose, brings the best of the Bay Area’s skilled craftspeople into one space for South Bay residents to enjoy. The fair features sustainably crafted jewelry, home décor, apothecary goods, confections and accessories sold by the artists. Each month, you can meet these makers, shop their artisan-crafted work, and enjoy live music in Santana Row Park.
In the spirit of reviving the art of craft, each month’s fair offers a DIY (do-it-yourself) workshop led by one of the artists - starting with the April 1st Spring and Easter Wreath-making workshop and May 6th Mommy and Me Succulent Planter Workshop. Tickets for the workshops can be purchased on Eventbrite.
Makers Market in the Park will run the first Saturday of the month through the end of the year, with the exception being the October Market, which will be held on October 14th.
Adjacent to the Park, you can also shop 100+ artists in the Makers Market store, while enjoying complementary wine tasting and bites.
“Makers Market is a fantastic addition to the Santana Row neighborhood. We continue to energize Santana Row by offering fresh and exciting concepts to engage our customers. Makers Market does just that by offering authentic, locally produced goods in a modern and hip setting,” said Brett Christopoulos of Santana Row Leasing.
Makers Market takes pride in selling only American-made goods, and its old-fashioned, general store vibe harks back to an era of explorers, adventurers and pioneers who made California what it is today.
“We’re excited to have this outpost in Santana Row and introduce the South Bay to these amazing makers and their intriguing stories – where they seek inspiration, where they source materials, what their passions are – and more,” explains founder Suzy Ekman.
